    Goes great with mustard pickles!

    Raised in outport Newfoundland in a town of 65 people, I pursued a post secondary diploma in Information Technology right out of High School.

    I’ve always been a geek at heart, but yet I love the rural life I grew up with. Fishing, hunting, camping and the great outdoors are still loves of mine, even if I don’t pursue them as often as I once did. Sports were always a big part of our lives, and I played many (badly) and loved them all.

      My Mom made these at least once a week. We were a family of 8 kids and 2 parents. I loved them and also like corned beef ash made from the tin of corned beef onions and mashed potatoes. Yummy
